On the 29th July, the Headmaster, while on his way to 
the printers with the proofs of this Magazine, collapsed and 

Of his qualities and his devotion to the School, two mem- 
bers of the Staff who knew him over a period of more than 
twenty years, have written eloquently and their joint tribute 
will be found within. Otherwise, apart from this brief edit- 
orial, the Magazine is as he had completed it and to those who 
have understanding, his personality will be found everywhere 
within its pages. 

With his passing, we can say with Tennyson : 
"The old order changeth. yeilding place to new. 
And Cod fulfils Himself in many ways 
Lest one good custom should corrupt the world. " 

It would be only fitting here to pay tribute also to two 
other loyal members of the Staff who served the School for 
many years: Miss Bowden and Major Howden have at last 
retired. Between them they have a record of more than fifty 
years service to the School. That they should enjoy a well 
earned rest is the sincere wish of us all. 

The Governors having honoured me on the 6th August 
with the appointment to the Headmastership, may I take this 
opportunity to offer a hearty welcome to Old Boys visiting the 
School. The strength of the School is measured not so much 
by numbers but by the quality of its products. The loyalty and 
devotion of the Old Boys is a measure of this quality and in 
them the spirit of the School continues long after they have 
left its walls and fields. It is to them, therefore, that I make 
this request. Take an active interest in School affairs, public- 
ize it among your friends and, best of all, visit it whenever 

vou can.

Assistant Master, Lniversity School 1910-1935 
Headmaster, University School 1935-1948 

mite Mttt. CScouTC l^erbert #carrett, |^.^. 

On July 29th, 1948, University School suffered a severe blow in 
the passing of the Rev. G. H. Scarrett who had served first as Assist- 
ant Master, and then as Headmaster, for 28 years. 

The late Headmaster was bom in Leek, Staffordshire, England, 
and taught at Alexander School, Broadstairs, and Skelsmergh School, 
Margate before coming to Canada in 1911, where for three years he 
taught at Bobcaygeon, Ontario. 

During the Great War he served with commissioned rank in the 
Prince Rupert Regiment, and some years later he took his Batchelor 
of Arts degree at Queens University, Kingston. 

In 1920 he came to University School from the Collegiate School 
in Victoria, and immediately became a vital force in the life of the 
institution he was to serve so well. 

While his main sphere of influence was the classroom, he took an 
active interest in all school activities, and the excellence of the School 
Cadet Band over the years is attributable to his boundless enthusiasm 
for this particular form of endeavour. 

In 1935 he was appointed Headmaster. University School was 
then at its lowest ebb: but for his unshakeable faith and indomitable 
courage it could never have survived the critical years which fol- 

Outside the School one of his main interests was Scouting, and 
he was for some years Scout Commisioner. 

Always a keen churchman he was in 1936 ordained in the Re- 
formed Episcopal Church, and in 1945 his ordination in. the ministry 
of the Church of England took place in Christ Church Cathedral, 

Such, then, is a brief outline of his origin and life. 

Of the man himself, of what he meant to the School and to those 
who knew him long and well, a volume might be written. Yet, in 
truth, no volume is needed, for his personality is stamped in letters 
of brass, not only on the grounds and buildings of the School, but 
also upon the very souls and characters of a thousand boys. A man 
of iron-clad determination, believing steadfastly and irrefutably in an 
unswerving line of Traditional Education, he never deviated a hair's 
breadth from his chosen course. It is perhaps true to say that his 
outstanding characteristic, well-nigh unique in these days of appease- 
ment and compromise, was his utter constancy. Quod dixi, dixi. To 
those who worked with him this inflexible constancy was a rock to 
which they could cling with complete reliance in the frequent vortices 
of School life. Perhaps, at times, his unbending rigour hid from 
others the kinder side of the man: possibly he was glad that this was 
so. Of his valour in all things, of his unremitting toil, of his mag- 
nificent achievements, especially in the dark days of 1935, there is no 
possible doubt. No other man who has been connected with the School 
could have done what he did in the years of difficulty. His labours 
during his Headmastership were unceasing; never for a moment did 
he spare himself; it is beyond doubt that he gave his life to, and for, 
the School. 

Softness, weakness, half-measures were anathema to him. Only 
too often the unbending rigour of his prescription would blind both 
physician and patient to the honest, deeper longing for spiritual wel- 
fare that lay below his stem control: but those who took the medicine 
he gave lived to thank the giver and to know the cleansing powers 
that were his. 

Perhaps he was the last of an Old Regime: we may not look upon 
his like again. Others may take his place in the years that lie before 
the School. To fill his place is not within their power: his niche in 
the line of Headmasters is his own and very bravely and very fully 
has he filled it. 

If he is in any need of an epitaph other than the stones of the 
buildings and the lives of his boys, perhaps it might read 




Duke as the Ker Cup winner for 1948; 

Fox as the winner of the Don Hugh Chapman Cup for 

Duke as the Senior Sports Champion ; 

Pollard as Intermediate Champion ; 

Bigelow as Junior Champion ; 

Burnett as the winner of the Cross Country Race for the 
second year in succession; 

Cadet Captain Cotter I, Officers, N.C.O.'s, and Mr. Cropper 
on the outstanding achievements of the Cadet Corps ; 

Ballantyne on passing with merit the Royal Schools of 
Music — Theory — Grade VI ; 

Strang on passing the Royal Conservatory of ^lusic, Tor- 
onto. Theory — Grade II. 

Our thanks are due R. G. R. Dalziel, P. D. Graham, 0. B. 
Morgan, A. G. Tisdall, J. A. Gibbs. Old Boys, the Masters and 
to ^Ir. A. McKinnon for their efficient help on Sports Day. 

Our thanks are also due to I\Ir. Riddle of Portland, Oregon, 
who presented the School with a quantity of badly needed 
incidental note pads. 

Last September we extended a cordial welcome to ^Ir. R. 
E. Allen who joined the Staff for Resident Duty during the 
year. ^Mr. Allen has now completed his Normal School Course 
and has left us to take a full time teaching position. Our 
best wishes go with him. 

A Confirmation Service was held at St. Luke's on Tues- 
day, May 11th. A large congregation attended the Service 
at which Branson, Brown II, Brown III, Colquhoun, Laing, 
Legg-Willis, Sundt II and Wilson, were confirmed by the Lord 
Bishop of British Columbia. The candidates were presented 
by the Headmaster after which his Lordship gave an appro- 
priate address for the occasion. 

The 42nd Founders' Day was observed as usual at the 
School on October 7th. The Headmaster gave an address in 
which he outlined the Founding of the School and its achieve- 
ments throughout the years. He referred particularly to the 
ideals of the Founders and the achievements of the Old Boys 
of the School in the matter of War Service and expressed the 
hope that the present boys would, in due time, be worthy suc- 

On November 11th, the Armistice Day Service was held 
at 10:45 in the Front Hall. The Headmaster took the Service 
which was attended by all the boys and jnembers of the staff. 
Capt. Harvey's last letter written to the boys in 1914 was read 
as well as the names of those who lost their lives in the two 
Wars. FollowinK the usual prayers and intercessions, the 
School Wreath was laid on the Honour Roll by Hodgkinson. 

The Service closed at 11:00 with the sounding of the Last 
Post by the trumpeters of the Cadet Corps Band after which 
the boys paid their respects before the Honour Roll, leaving 
by the front door. 

"The Spirit" has finally gone into dignified retirement 
after many years of faithful service and, with a quizzical eye, 
watches a visiting tractor tow the "cherubim" round the field. 

The driveway in front of the School buildings has been 
greatly improved by the addition of kerbs which add to the 
neatness of the approach. Further additions are being made. 

As usual, Mr. Beaumont kindly offered the School a picnic 
on his launch. Our thanks are due to him: the fact that the 
weather prevented the picnic in no way lessens our gratitude 
to this good friend. 

Boys of the upper forms were lucky in having the oppor- 
tunity of seeing Macbeth, performed at the Royal Victoria by 
Donald Wolfitt's London Company. Such treats come all too 
seldom. They also attended a performance of Amateur Dra- 
matics in which several Old Boys took part at the Normal 

We tender our thanks to the Signals Officer, H.M.C.S. 
Naden, who kindly lent us a large number of flags and pen- 
nants with which the Gymnasium was decorated on Sports 
Day and Speech Day. 

The School enjoyed a welcome Half-Holiday on the oc- 
casion of the wedding of T. H. The Princess Elizabeth and the 
Duke of Edinburgh. 

We extend our best wishes to Commodore W. B. Creery, 
C.B.E., R.C.N. (1910-1914), who is leaving his command at 
H.M.C.S. Royal Roads to take up an appointment at Ottawa. 
We shall miss his frequent visits to the School. 

The Governors have appointed IMr. J. J. Timmis, M.A. 
(Oxon) Headmaster. 


The results of the Matriculation Examinations were very 
creditable. R. M. Duke headed the list of Junior Matriculants.

The 42nd Annual Speech Day was held on Friday, June 
18th. The Rev. F. H. Cosgrave, formerly Provost and Vice- 
Chancellor of Trinity College, Toronto, addressed the visitors 
and boys and presented the prizes for the year. 

The Headmaster welcomed a large gathering of parents 
and visitors, some of whom had come from a considerable dis- 
tance to be present for the ceremony. In his Report, he re- 
ferred to the excellent showing made by the boys in the De- 
partmental Examinations last year and commented on all the 
Activities during the year. He made special refere-nce to the 
outstanding success of the Cadet Corps, Shooting, Rugby Foot- 
ball, Cricket, Boxing and Gymnastics. He then introduced 
and welcomed the guest speaker, The Rev. Dr. Cosgrave, who 
addressed the boys reminding them of the purpose of School 
life and, now that their School days were over, to put into 
practice the vital things they had learned while at school. 

Mr. F. E. Winslow, O.B.E., Chairman of the Board of 
Governors, thanked Dr. Cosgrave for his excellent address 
and for its message and inspiration. 

Dr. Cosgrave then presented the prizes according to the

As usual the Annual School Sports were held on the first 
Saturday in June, this year, on June 5th. The weather was 
ideal for the occasion. 

Competition, especially in the Open events, was keen. 
There were no records broken as the Track was unusually 
heavy for this time of the year. 

About five hundred guests, parents, Old Boyr. and friends 
of the School attended. Following the first half of the pro- 
gramme, tea was served as usual in the School Gymnasium. 

Following the events, the visitors and boys gathered 
around the School Steps and the Headmaster welcomed the 
guests and introduced to them, Mr. Archie McKinnon, Phys- 
ical Director, Y.M.C.A., who was to present the prizes. Mr. 
McKinnon spoke to the assembled group, particularly to the 
boys on the unusual oDportunities they had for keeping phys- 
ically fit at a School with such facilities as University School. 
Mr. F. E. Winslow, O.B.E., Chairman of the Board of Govern- 
ors, thanked Mr. McKinnon for the outstanding work he was 
doing for the benefit of boys generally in the community and 
also for his kindness and service to the School on so many 
occasions. Mr. McKinnon then presented the prizes for the 
Track events of the day and the Boxing, the finals of which 
were held during the Easter Term.

Perram ( for 1947) 



With five of last year's side available, prospects for the 
season were promising. However, although the summer term 
was rather longer than usual it was as busy as ever, and 
the number of cricket fixtures actually carried through was 
most disappointing. Bad weather delayed the opening, while 
a week end holiday and rain forced the cancellation of two 

In all, five matches were played, three of which were 
won, one lost and one drawn. Four boys — Clifford, Cotter I, 
Duke and Shaw averaged over ten runs per innings with the 
bat, while Shaw and Mackenzie bore the brunt of the bowling. 
The fielding was quite keen without being brilliant, the out- 
standing feature being the very fast and accurate throwing 
from cover by Cotter I. Shipley I kept wicket adequately and 
his understanding with Cotter I resulted in many a "run out." 

M. L. Clifford was elected captain and made a very prom- 
ising beginning. D. V. Shaw assisted him as vice-captain. 
Colours were awarded to Clifford and Shaw, and the official 
team for the season was as follows: I\I. L. Clifford, D. V. Shaw, 
A. C. Cotter, R. M. Duke, G. R. Shipley, J. W. Shipley, D. A. 
Davison, J. B. Colquhoun, J. G. ?dyers, H. L. B. Mackenzie, 
G. T. L. Read. 

The Clayton Cup was won by Duke's team but only after 
surviving competition of the keenest kind from the side cap- 
tained by Shipley I. 

The Colts played six games but were not successful in 
winning any of them. The standard of play in the lower 
school was not high. 

The Prize Bat presented by the University School Incogs 
to the best all round cricketer in the School was won by 'M. L. 



School vs. J. A. Gibb's Team 

The School was successful in the opening match against 
a scratch side captained by J. A. Gibbs. 

Clifford showed promise with the bat while Shaw was 
easily the best of the School bowlers taking 7 wickets for 11

School vs. Brentwood College 

This game was played on the Sidney Recreation Ground 
and resulted in a very even draw. Batting first the School 
scored slowly until Cotter came in to hit up 28 in quick time. 
Clifford declared at 76 for 6 and then Brentwood made a 
creditable effort to make the runs but they were 8 short with 
four wickets in hand at the end. Shaw had an off day with 
the ball but the School fielding was quite good and definitely 
superior to that of their opponents.

School vs. Brentwood College 
The return match against Brentwood was played at home 
and won by the School by 16 runs. The School fared badly 
with the bat, Clifford being the only one to reach double 
figures but Brentwood found the bowling of Mackenzie, who 
took 5 for 8, too much for them. The School fielding was keen.

CLIFFORD — Much improved with the bat and is now developing 
attacking strokes to go with a defence already quite sound. 
Active in the field with good hands. Led the side with en- 
thusiasm and has learnt much of the art of captaincy. 

SHAW — By no means sound with either bat or ball but had some 
very good days with both. Hits the ball hard but as yet lacks 
both the defence and the patience to be a consistent scorer. 
Very active in the field and had a successful season. 

DUKE — Possessed few strokes but was always looking for runs, 
running well between the wickets and frequently scoring 
when others had failed. Keen and active in the field and pos- 
sessed good hands. A useful member of the side. 

SHIPLEY I — Again performed creditably behind the stumps. Alert 
intelligent and possessed safe hands. Improved somewhat with 
the bat but did not use his reach sufficiently, and hit across 
the ball. 

COTTER I — Had a successful season as a hitter but was quite lack- 
ing in defence. A very useful cover point from which position 
his fast and accurate throwing resulted in many a "run out." 
A fairly good catch. 

MYERS — Never came off with the bat and developed a suicidal 
"spoon" shot on the off. Developed into a useful bowler and 
was the side's first change. A good fielder both in the air 
and on the ground. 

COLQUHOUN — A promising player. Possessed strokes, if rather 
gentle ones, on the leg side and had a fair defence. Very 
keen, and when he develops the necessary confidence should do 
well. A bad judge of a run as yet. Is learning to bowl. 

MACKENZIE — Enjoyed a successful season with the ball and main- 
tained fair accuracy and length but without much "sting." 
He can drive the over pitched ball but has no idea of back play. 
Slow in the field. 

DAVISON— Has the ability to bowl and will do so if he can develop 
a vital interest and is willing to work. Lethargic in the field. 

SHIPLEY II — Improved considerably all round. He is keen to learn 
and should bowl if he perseveres. Requires confidence and 
practice with the bat. Useful and extremely willing in the 

READ — Nervous and lacking in confidence as yet, but he has cricket 
in him and will yet do very well with the bat. A poor judge 
of a run. Very fair in the field. 



Winner of the 
Donald Hugh Chapman Cup 

Awarded for the 

Best all round boj^ in the School 

under 14 on the basis of Character 

Scholarship and Athletics. 



The Swimming and Diving Competitions were held on 
June 10th. As usual, Mr. McKinnon acted as judge. 

There was a good deal of keen competition especially in 
the Open Races. For the second year in succession, Gilbert 
was the winner of the Swimming. His time for the open 60 
yards race was 37". Shipley I came second. 

The Diving for the second year in succession was won by 
Davison who was awarded his colour for Diving. 


The Gym competition was held on March 15th. Thirteen 
boys competed for the eight places. 

Mr. A. McKinnon was judge. He congratulated the boys 
on their work and awarded Captaincy of the Gym VIII to 
Clifford, who was awarded the Hay Croft Cup on Sports Day^ 
The remaining members of the team were : Pollard, Cotterll. 
Fox, Price, Sundt I, Colquhoun and Gilbert. 


This year about sixty boys entered the contest. The win- 
ner again for the second time was Burnett who covered the 
course in h minute less than the previous year. He was a- 
warded the Old Boys' Cup on Sports Day. 

Wilson came in a good second. Barker I was the First 
Junior and was awarded the Robertson Cup. 


As usual proved a popular game this year. 

The finals were held on June 14th. The singles were won 
by Duke who defeated Shaw 6 — 3, 6 — 0. The Doubles were 
won by Duke and Shaw who defeated Davison and Strang 
8—5. 9—7. 

Duke was awarded the Barnacle Cup and Colours. 



Our Track Team competed in the Preview Olympic Finals 
IMeet held at MacDonald's Park on June 7th. The competition 
was of a very high calibre indeed. Although no firsts were 
secured, our team did secure 5 seconds and 3 thirds on that 
occasion. The point winners were: 

Burnett placed 2nd in the Jr. 440 yards 

Shipley II 2nd in the Jr. 880 yds. 

Shaw 2nd in the Jr. 220 yds. 

3rd in the Broad Jump 

Duke took 2nd place in both the 100 yds. & 220 yds. 

Price came 3rd in 100 yds. & 220 yds. 

Noel and Clifford showed much improvement in the mile 
and 880 yds. respectively. Pollard, the youngest member of 
the Team, did very well indeed considering that he was com- 
peting against youths two and three years his senior. 


This year the School were successful in arranging out- 
side matches and there was considerable interest displayed 
throughout the School. 

A very weak "Victoria College team provided the opposition 
in the first match, the School winning 8 — 0. Shaw and Duke 
were the leading scorers. 

For the second match Professor H. V. Warren brought 
over a Faculty and Graduate team from the University of 
B. C. in Vancouver. Some very even fast hockey was seen in 
this game which was won by the School by the odd goal in 
three. Both School goals came in the first half, Duke and 
Clifford being the scorers. U.B.C. opened their account just 
before half time and though they had a decided advantage 
during the second half, they were unable to score again and 
the School won 2 — 1. 

Cotter I, who captained the side was very effective at 
centre half, Bennett and ^Mackenzie did w-ell at back, while 
Shipley I kept goal splendidly. Of the forwards, Duke was 
the best. Mr. Cyril Jones very kindly refereed the game. 



At a meeting held early in the term R. ^1. Duke was 
elected captain for the season while K. W. Bennett was chosen 
to assist him as vice-captain. In addition to the above, only" 
A. C. Cotter and J. VV. Shipley of the previous year's team 
were available. 

The 1st XV enjoyed a most successful season winning 
seven of the twelve matches played, losing three and drawing 
two. This record was particularly creditable in view of the 
fact that Bennett, the vice-captain left at Christmas, and in 
consequence the vital stand-off half position had to be filled. 
Outstanding features contributing to the success were the 
keenness and enthusiasm of the side, the dash and opportun- 
ism of Duke in the centre, the fine defensive play of Bennett, 
the all round effectiveness of Shipley I, and the very solid 
work put in by the second row. Cotter I and Shipley II. 

Colours were awarded to R. M. Duke, A. C. Cotter, J. W. 
Shipley and G. R. Shipley, the remainder of the team being 
made up of: D. A. Davison, D. V. Shaw, E. P. Rimmer, M. L. 
Clifford, H. C. Burnett, E. J. Field, D. L. Taylor, D. K. Tresize, 
R. G. Pollard, R. I. Strang, and D. I. Hogarth. 

The Colts ranging in weight from 110 lbs to 130 lbs., 
played matches against both Shawnigan Lake School and 
Brentwood College. Both games were won quite easily and 
some good talent was observed. Myers, who captained the 
side, Bigelow, Brown II and Butler II being particularly 



School vs. Oak Bay High School 
The School opened the season at home on Oct. 23 against 
Oak Bay High School who won a very even game by a goal, a 
penalty goal and a try (11 pts. to a penalty goal and two 
tries (9 pts.). 

The ^chool scored all their points in the first half. Ship- 
ley I opened the scoring early in the game when he was suc- 
cessful with a penalty from dead in front. A little later Duke 
gathered a wild kick by the opposition and ran through on his 
own from half way to score between the posts. Shaw missed 
the easy conversion. Cotter I added to the School lead when 
he picked up a loose ball and ran in on his own. Shaw failed 
to convert. The High School then attacked and just before 
half time opened their account with a try by their right wing. 
The try was converted and the School led 9 — 5 at the interval. 

The High School had a decided advantage during the 
second half. The School seemed to tire somewhat and there 
was some very faulty defensive play on the left wing. After 
a period of fairly even play the High School were successful 
with a penalty from a difficult angle, and a little later forced 
the School to touch down twice. At this stage Bennett was 
prominent for the School, his tackling being of a high order. 
Towards the end it was all High School whose superiority in 
weight was beginning to tell, and shortly before no-side they 
obtained the winning try at the flag. 

For the School Bennett was outstanding behind the scrum: 
but for his excellent defensive play the School would have 
been overrun in the last ten minutes. Duke had a good match 
and Rimmer made a promising beginning. Among the for- 
wards Shipley I was a tower of strength, while Taylor and 
Shipley H turned in useful games. 

School vs. R.C.N.-R.C.A.F. College 

The School playing at home proved too strong for a 
R.C.N.-R.C.A.F. side winning by a goal and five tries (20 pts.) 
to a penalty goal (3 pts.). 

Exerting pressure from the opening whistle the School 
soon opened the scoring when Shaw took Bennett's pass to 
cross at the flag. He failed to convert his own try. A little 
later Shipley H was quick to seize a loose ball close to the 
line and force his way over for Shaw to add the extra points. 
A little later Shipley I crossed far out but Shaw failed to con- 
vert and the School led 11 — at the interval. 


The College pressed for a period after half time but their 
outsides were not together and they seldom looked dangerous; 
their only success being fi-om a penalty given against the 
School for offside. Towards the end the School attacked 
strongly and in the best movement of the day Duke took Rim- 
mer's pass to run forty yards through the centre to score 
between the posts. Shaw missed the easy kick. A little later 
Duke made much ground on the left wing before giving to 
Shaw who ran in unopposed but again failed with the kick. 
The final try came when Bennett, who ran with great deter- 
mination throughout, burst through the centre ond ran to 
within five yards of the line before being tackled by the full 
back. From the resulting scramble Rimmer, who was up in 
support, won a race for the ball to score a try which Shipley I 
just failed to goal from a wide angle. Bennett. Duke and 
were the best of the School backs. Shipley I led the forwards 
who kicked badly and heeled slowly. 

School vs. Victoria High School 

A hard but rugged game played at home resulted in a win 
for he School by the only try scored. 

The first half was keenly contested with the School having 
slightly the better of the game, but apart from Bennett's out- 
standing try, was without incident. This try came when, fol- 
lowing a scrum twenty-five yards from the High School line, 
Bennett took the ball from his scrum help and going on the 
blind side, ran to within ten yards of the line where he was 
finally tackled. Regaining his feet immediately he took the 
ball at his feet the rest of the way in the face of severe op- 
position to score what proved to be the winning try. 

The High School had rather the better of the second half 
and the School were forced to touch down more than once. 
The School however had their chances and had Shaw accepted 
a wild kick by the opposition their margin would have been 

Bennett, who was very determined both in attack and de- 
fence was outstanding behind the scrum while Shipley I was 
easily the pick of the forwards. 

School i'5. Brentwood College 

Playing away the School were well beaten by Brentwood 
by two goals, two penalty goals, and two tries (22 pts.) to one 
goal and a try (8 pts.). The game was played at a rare pace 
throughout and while not as skilfully played as matches of 
previous years, lacked little in respect of the keenness of the 
football and the spirit in which it was played. 


Brentwood had rather the better of the first half ter- 
ritorially but at half time had only scored one try while the 
School had a goal and a try to their credit and led 8 — 3. The 
School opened the scoring; when some faulty passing in the 
Brentwood centre gave Duke the barest of chances. Snapping 
up a dropped pass he ran sixty yards through the centre to 
score close to the posts; a splendid individual effort. Shipley 
I goaled and the School led by five points. A little later Brent- 
wood opened their account a forward try being obtained far 
out, the kick failing. Although beaten forward the School 
defence was adequate and the work of Bennett unusually out- 
standing. His tackling was a joy to watch and McMahon, the 
effective Brentwood outside half was fully held in check. 
Pollard, filling in at full back for the School was severely 
tested and stood up very well under severe pressure. Shortly 
before half time the School increased their lead v/hen Shaw 
scored the best try of the day at the flag. From a line just 
outside the Brentwood twenty-five, Clifford got the ball avv'ay 
Bennett. Rjmmer and Duke both huddled and Shaw finished 
the movement with a fine burst of speed to cross at the corner. 
Shipley I failed to convert and the School led 8 — 3. 

Shortly after the restart, disaster overtook the School in 
the shape of two penalties given for offside directly under 
the posts. Both came as a result of weak clearances by School 
backs and both were goaled. From these penalties the School 
never recovered and Brentwood dominated the second half. In 
the last fifteen minutes two goals and a try were obtained and 
Brentwood won 22 — 8. The Brentwood forwards were far 
faster and heavier than the School pack who gave a coura- 
geous display but could not match their opponents either in 
the "tight" or the "loose." As a result the Brentwood backs 
had constant possession during the second half and the School 
outsides wore themselves out in gallant defence. Bennett 
was excellent throughout, time and again he saved the School 
when all seemed lost, and his effective and courageous play 
will be long remembered. Duke and Shaw did many good 
things and the outsides as a group held their own. The for- 
wards were overwhelmed by bigger and faster men but the 
whole side played with spirit and never gave up. A grand 

School vs. R.C.N.-R.C.A.F. College 

This game was played at the Royal Canadian Naval and 
Royal Canadian Air Force College and con by the home side 
by two goals and two tries (16 pts.) to a try (3 pts.). The 
School were five regulars short through injury but gave a 
fair display and had more of the game than the score would 


The College, well served by their halves, scored a goal 
and a try in the first half and had by far the better of the 
play. The School handling and passing were weak, and there 
was too much hesitant tackling in the centre. 

Immediately after the restart the College went further 
ahead when some very bad running by Price resulted in a try 
close to the posts. Goal was kicked. The School then came 
to life and had the better of the game. After a period of 
steady pressure, Shaw being particularly prominent, this 
player accepted a pass from Bennett, and running with deter- 
mination scored at the flag. Shipley I failed to convert. Just 
before the end the College obtained the final try which was 
unconverted. The School, while not good enough to win, had 
the luck of the game against them, particularly when Price 
appeared to have won a race for the ball in the College in-goal 
and a touch dov.-n was awarded. 

School vs. Shawnigax Lake School 

Playing away the School defeated Shawnigan Lake School 
by 3 goals and a try (18 pts.) to (0). 

For some time play was very even but mid way through 
the half the School opened their account when Rimmer found 
an opening. Dashing through, he gave to Duke who ran from 
half way to score between the posts for Shipley I to convert. 
A little later Bennett blocked a kick near the Shawiiigan line 
and won a race fro the ball to put the School further ahead. 
Shipley I failed to convert. Just before half time Bennett 
scored his second try- — a sure determined run through the 
centre putting him over between the posts for Shipley I to add 
the extra points. 

The second half was much more even. Shawnigan, whose 
forwards packed well and heeled quickly, gave a good display 
and threatened several times. In addition they were awarded 
a penalty under the School posts but the kick was missed. The 
only try of the second half came when Duke kicked up a loose 
ball and sped down the wing to cross at the flag and score 
between the posts. Shipley I kicked his third goal, and the 
School won 18 — 0. Tne backs while good individually, were 
not well together, and Shaw was badly neglected during the 
second half. 

School vs. Oak Bay High School 

This was the second game of the season between the sides 
and this time victory went to the School by a goal and tvs'o 
penalty goals (11 pts.) to three tries (9 pts.). 


Shortly after the start the High School were penalized for 
offside and Shipley I dropped a good gooal. For Fome time 
play was very even but neither set of backs combined well.e 
However before half time the School line had been crossed 
twice — both tries resulting from poor defensive plays in their 
twenty-five. Neither try was converted. The School replied 
through Cotter who dribbled through following a line out in 
the Oak Bay twenty-fiive. This was a good individual effort, 
a just reward for keen play. Shipley I added the extra points, 
and the School led 8 — 6 at half time. 

Play during the second half was definitely in Oak Bay's 
favour but their backs finished badly and the School were 
saved by good tackling and defensive kicking by Bennett. The 
School threatened however and a fine run by Duke only just 
failed. Another penalty against the High School gave Shipley 
I his second penalty goal and ended the scoring as far as the 
School was concerned. Just before no-side the High School 
scored their final try but the kick, though from an easy angle, 
was missed, and the School won 11 — 9. Shipley I was easily 
the best of the School forwards, and his kicking was the de- 
ciding factor in a very even game. Cotter I and Pollard were 
also prominent in the pack. Behind the scrum Bennett was, 
as usual, a tower of strength. In the closing stages when the 
pressure was keen his defensive kicking was invaluable. Shaw 
was starved and had little opportunity. Davison, at full back, 
was not happy, and was most shaky under pressure. 

School vs. Victoria College (Intermediate) 

An extremely high and bitter north wind ruined what 
promised to be an excellent game. 

The first half was evenly contested with play largely of 
a forward nature. Duke made one or two nice runs through 
the centre, and from one of these, Taylor who followed up 
fast, was able to gain possession and throw himself over to 
score a try which Shipley I failed to improve. 

The two sides tried hard to play football after half time 
but conditions were too difficult, and the game was rarely 
better than an evenly matched scramble. The College equal- 
ized before the end, a forward scoring far out but neither side 
looked like scoring again and a 3 — 3 draw resulted. 

Shipley I, Cotter I and Taylor were prominent among the 
School forwards, while of the backs Duke alone ever looked 



School vs. Brentwood College 

This game was played at home under apalling weather 
and ground conditions and resulted in a scoreless draw. Play 
was entirely of a forward nature and some very strenuous 
work was put in by both sides. Behind the scrum the School 
gave the impression that under decent conditions they would 
be more effective. 

Play during the first half was slightly in the School's 
favour, while after half time the ball seldom left the area 
between the twenty-five yard line. 

Both sides tried their level best, and with some success, 
to make a game of it. 

The Shipley brothers and Cotter I were outstanding for 
the School. 

School vs. Brentwood College 

Played on the School grounds this game was as usual 
contested with rare spirit, and won by the School by two tries 
(6 pts.) to 0. 

The ball was a difficult one, but no rain fell during the 
game and some three quarter work was seen. 


Early in the game Duke the School captain injured his 
ankle and was of little use in attack thereafter; he defended 
pluckily however retiring to the wing mid way through the 
second half. 

The School exerted pressure from the start and although 
the Brentwood line was not seriuosly in danger some promis- 
ing movements in which Shipley I, Burnett and Taylor par- 
ticipated were noticed. The first real thrill came mid way 
through the first half when a Brentwood centre went clean 
through the middle on his own and beat Davison the School 
full back, only to be tackled by Burnett and Cotter I who came 
from nov.'here to save the day. The School primed again how- 
ever and following some keen play in the Brentwood twenty- 
five Clifford tried to force his way over following a scrum 
near the line. This attempt failed but a little later, from a 
similar scrum Clifford whipped the ball out to Rimmer and 
Shaw accepted a scoring pass to cross the line offer a short 
run. Shipley I failed to kick goal and the School had to be 
content with a lead of three points at half time. 

After the breather play was largely confined to midfield. 
what advantage there was lying with the School whose backs 
huddled better than their opponents, and were more lively. 
Burnett was very prominent at this stage his play being 
spirited and eflfective. The School forwards were good in the 
"loose" and several good rushes were seen. From one of these, 
w^hich was led by Shipley I, Burnett was able to beat the de- 
fence to the ball and to score near the flag. Shipley I failed 
to improve this try and the School won 6 — 0. 

Without exception the School had played vigorous football 
and they were at least six points better on the day's play. 
Shipley I, Cootter, and Shipley II were outstanding among a 
pack who fully held their heavier opponents in every phase of 
forward play. Behind the scrum Rimmer handled the three 
quarters particularly Burnett who gave a most promising dis- 
play, did some good things. 

School vs. Old Boys (Victoria) 

The Victoria Old Boys were no match for the School who 
had no trouble in winning by two goals and five tries (25 pts. ) 
to 0. 

From the start the School exerted pressure and with their 
marked superiority behind the scrum it was evident that the 
Old Boys' defence would be severely tested. Shipley I opened 
the scoring for the School, and before half time Shaw had 
crossed after a moveme-nt in which Rimmer and Bennett par- 
ticipated, while Gilbert,, who had an excellent match at right 


wing three qcarter. scored on two occasions. The score might 
well have been greater at this time but for the excellent tack- 
ling of Bryn-Jones. The Old Boys' full back. 

After half time, play w^as rather more even, but the School 
were always on top, and before the end had scored tries 
through Taylor, Burnett and Shaw. Shipley I had an off day 
converting but two of the seyen tries scored, and the School 
won 25—0. 

School vs. Old Boys (Vancouver) 

This game was played on the main ground at the Uni- 
versity of B. C. in Vancouver, and won by the School by two 
goals (10 pts.) to three tries (9 pts.). 

The Old Boys had by far the better of the play during 
the first fifteen minutes. Williams who was impressive at out- 
side half went through on his own to score the first try be- 
tween the posts while a little later Alan LeMarquand scored 
to finish a three-quarter movement. The School opened their 
account when Price finished off a movement in which there 
was some nice short passing by both forwards and backs. Ship- 
ley I goaled from dead in frone and as neither Old Boys' try 
was converted the Old Boys led 6 — 5 at half time. 

After the restart the Old Boys went further ahead when 
Corry scored at the flag. The try was not converted. Play 
was very ragged for the rest of the game but shortly before 
the end the School backs produced one of their few^ decent 
movements of the day and Duke scored for Shipley I to goe.'. 
from a fairly wide angle. In winning by a single point the 
School were far from impressive and actually fortunate to 
win. The Old Boys had the better of the game and poor place 
kicking lost them the match. 


DUKE (Captain and Centre Three-quarter) — An improved player 
whose elusiveness and great speed brought him many a try in 
the centre. Possessed fair hands, but his passing was erratic 
and his kicking weak. Not a good defender but fairly effect- 
ive despite his lack of weight. A very keen and enthusiastic 

DAVISON (Full Back)— A fair kick and a useful tackle, but far too 
slow in gathering, and weak in face of forwards with the ball 
at their feet. Requires another year's experience. 

CLIFFORD (Scrum Half) — Had a successful season at the base of 
the scrum when his play, if somewhat deliberate, was always 
intelligent. Possessed good hands but his kicking was very 
weak indeed. Considerably improved in defence. Has a sound 
knowledge of the game and is a player of real promise. 


RIMMER (Stand off Half) — Avigorous and courageous player. His 
hands were not good, but he was a fair passer and quite un- 
selfish. A weak kick, but a very depedanble tackle and the 
best of the backs in this department. 

FIELD (Wing Three-quarter) — New to the game but developed con- 
siderably. Possessed a useful hand off and ran well on oc- 
casion. Hesitant in defence, and somewhat lacking both in 
determination and condition. 

BURNETT (Centre Three-quarter) — Came on greatly toward the 
close of the season and is a player of promise. Possessed fair 
hands and a useful turn of speed. Improved defensively and 
is learning to kick with judgment. Has keenness and ability 
and lacks experience only. 

SHAW (Wing Three-quarter) — Played both as a centre and as a 
wing, but was more convincing in the latter position. A strong 
determined runner he finished movements well. He combined 
poorly, holding on far too long, and apart from his kicking 
his defensive play was very bad. 

TAYLOR — Filled the "hook" position with success. Played the game 
intelligently and with obvious enjoyment. Possessed good 
hands. A very steady consistent player. 

TRESIZE — A hard working front row man. Active in the "loose," 
a good tackle, and vastly improved generally. 

SHIPLEY I — Fulfilled the promise shown last year and developed 
into a splendid forward. Excelled in the line out where his 
great height and sure hands were used to advantage. The 
most consistent kicker, both place and drop, to represent the 
School for years. Played keen and intelligent football throug- 
out the season and never disappointed. 

HOGARTH — New to the game but came on considerably and did 
well at "break." Tackled well and always gave of his best 

COTTER I — A fine forward whose work in the second row was of a 
high order. A great pusher in the "tight," full of dash and well 
directed effort in the "loose," and very useful defensively. 
Played the game in a splendid spirit. His place will indeed 
be hard to fill. 

SHIPLEY II — Another excellent forward who demonstrated the 
value of honest push in the second row. A steady and depend- 
able player of great promise. 

POLLARD — An extremely effective back row forward of whom all 
too little was seen owing to injuries. Vigorous, determined, 
and the best tackier on the side. Played occasionally at full 
back and gave creditable displays full of courage and judg- 

STRANG — A promising forward with a good knowledge of the game. 
Rather slow in the "loose," and deficient in defence as yet, but 
played intelligently and unselfishly at all times. 




The following appointments were approved by the Head- 

C. Capt. ------- A. C. Cotter 

C Lieut. ------- p. Paterson 

C/Lieut. ------- G. R. Shipley 

C/C.S.M. ------- W. J. Shipley 

C C.Q.M.S. ------ H. Mackenzie 

The official strength of the Corps this year was 50. By 
incorporating an additional 11 who were under the age limit 
we had two sizeable platoons and a Band of 12. 

During the early part of the year much pressure was 
brought to bear on the group activities. Five signallers were 
successful in obtaining their junior Morse certificates togther 
with a cheque in the sum of $5.00. Cpl. Hogarth is to be con- 
gratulated warmly on the untiring efforts he made with the 
St. John Ambulance class. Nine of his ten passed the require- 
ments and were presented with certificates in due course. 

The responsibilities of the Knots and Lashings v;ere 
undertaken by Capt. A. C. Cotter, who proved himself to be 
an extremely capable officer in every phase of Cadet work. 
J. Shipley is to commended for the efficient manner in which 
he fulfilled the difficult positions of C.S.^NL and P.T. Instructor. 
As such he was most dependable. 


Our 42nd Annual Inspecion was held on May 3rd and we 
were privileged to have as our Inspecting Officer Col. T. E. 
Snow, whose father had carried out a similar duty 88 years 
ago. The latter, despite his years, made a special effort to 
be present on this occasion — a gesture that was more than 
appreciated by those present. The Ceremonial Company and 
Rifle Drill were of a very high order and much interest was 
shown in the group activities. As a Corps we were rated 959^ 
efficient. This high mark was attained only through the com- 
bined efforts of all. 

The Band, under Sergt. Duke once again proved itself in- 
dispensable and a large amount of the success vouchsafed the 
Corps must go to those members, who with their instruments, 
enhanced the marching precision of the Corps. 

Cadet Discharge Certificates are now available. These 
are primarily intended for those who are leaving us and who 
intend to join one of the branches of His Majesty's Forces. 
Since they indicate the length of service in the Corps and the 
work covered they should help to curtail much of the pre- 
liminary foot-slogging and rifle drill that normally await the 
raw recruit.

Recreational shooting, which started late in 1946, was 
carried out extensively this year and as a result 33 Cadets 
were awarded their 1st Class Badge, 5 their Expert and 2 their 
Sniper. This type of training, laid down by N.D.H.Q. Ottawa, 
provides each cadet with a greater number of rounds and in 
addition makes it possible for him to win a different badge as 
each category is successfully completed. In the writer's 
opinion it is an excellent course for the beginner but lacks 
finesse when it comes to exacting the best from the more ex- 
perienced shots. 

The results of last year's Shooting in the D.C.R.A. were 
not received until September and so could not be inserted in 
the School ^Magazine. Of the two teams entered, the "A" Team 
an average of 919^ came 4th, in B. C. out of 42. Of the 580 
schools firing across Canada we were placed 112th. The 
scores showed much keen competition. Had our average been 
bettered by 1.25% we would have atteined 1st place in B. C. 
and been in the 80's for all Canada. We must keep on trying 
harder. Our "B"Team averaged 87.967r. This year we 
averaged 91.25%.^ Second class medals were claimed for and 
received by Hogarth, [Mackenzie. Shaw and Shipley II for hav- 
ing averaged 90^^ or over in the 3 shoots. ]\Iost unfortun- 
ately a dislocated shoulder prevented A. Cotter, one of the 
cainstays of the Team, from participating in the third shoot. 

We have as yet received no official results for the 
Shoot for April 1947, when the best ten scores out of twenty 
brought us an average of 94%. 

Old Boys will learn with regret that the Cadet Author- 
ities have withdrawn all the B.S.A. No. 8 rifles and substituted 
the Long Branch No. 7. The new rifle is heavier, longer and 
boasts a bolt and magazine. From an accuracy point of view 


it cannot be beaten, althouKh there are some who would have 
it otherwise. Some very excellent scores have been made, 
particularly by Davison, Mackenzie, Cotter I and Shipley II. 

This year the Harvey INIemorial Rifle was won by H. Mac- 
kenzie, the Harvey Challenge Cup for the highest score in the 
D.C.R.A. by D. Davison and the Don Braidwood Cup for the 
best Intermediate by R. I. Kingham, who was the best Junior 
last year and who incidentally narrowly missed a place on the 
School team. 

Shooting Colours were awarded to A. C. Cotter and H. 

The following were selected to represent the School VIII: 
M. L. Clifford H. L. Mackenzie 

A. C. Cotter P. Paterson 

D. Davison G. R. Shipley 

D. I. Hogarth D. K. Tresize 



Among the recent changes in command released recently 
by the Royal Canadian Navy a new appointment and pro- 
motion is announced for Capt. \V. B. Creery, C.B.E., R.C.N. , 
presently officer commanding H.M.C.S. Royal Roads. Capt. 
Creery is to become Chief of Naval Personnel at Ottawa and 
is promoted to the rank of Commodore. The Appointment is 
to take effect on August 16, 1948. Commodore Creery entered 
the Royal Naval College from University School in 1914, and 
served through the Great War as a midshipman. During the 
World War he commanded H.M.C.S. Eraser, and later H.r.I.C.S. 
Prince Robert. In 1946 he was appointed to command H M.C.S. 
Royal Roads, the Royal Canadian Navy and Royal Canadian 
Air Force College in Victoria. We shall miss his cheerful 
hospitality at Royal Roads, and his faithful attendance at Old 
Boys' gatherings. All Old Boys v.-ish him every success in 

Other Old Boys mentioned in the Royal Canadian Navy's 
promotion list are Commander E. P. Tisdall and Lieut. Com- 
mander E. S. Boak, D.S.C. The former, who is Director Gen- 
eral of Naval Ordnance at Ottav,'a, is promoted to Cantain 
while the latter, who has been navigating officer aboard 
H.M.C.S. Magnificent, becomes a Commander, and is to take 
up a new appointment in Dartmouth, N.S., that of command 
of the R.C.N. Air Station. 

Congratulations to R. G. R. Dalziel who has been awarded 
the John Sheppard Memorial Trophy. This trophy was pre- 
sented to the Oak Bay Wanderers Football Club by Mrs. C. F. 
Corbett in memory of her son John Sheppard w^ho was killed 
with the R.A.F. early in the war. It is awarded annually to 
the player, '"who best serves the club in sportsmanship, duty 
and honour." 

The University School Incogs Cricket Club is functioning 
as usual and is holding its own in league play in Victoria. 
TheWenman brothers and Owen Morgan were chosen to rep- 
resent Victoria against Vancouver on July 1st. 

Apparently Paul Rowe still retains much of his speed and 
skill on the football field. While playing last season for Cal- 
gary Stampeders against Winnipeg Blue Bombers he ran 90 
yards through the opposition to secure something called a 
"touchdown." [Why didn't he kick in his own twenty-five ?-Ed.] 

We understand that Henry Coe is now a proud parent 
and that his infant daughter answers to the name of Kali Coe. 
It would seem that Henry has changed but little.
